MK Recap 3: The Future of MK: Legacy and The New Movie
by Gambid on May 30, 2014 :: 0 Comments

As we reported a few months back, Mortal Kombat: Legacy director Kevin Tancharoen informed the fans at the end of last year that he is leaving Mortal Kombat after three years spent with the franchise. Ever since that day, there has been a complete eclipse regarding the fate of the third season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy and that of the new movie. All that changed, when NerdReactor interviewed Kevin about his latest project:

With Legacy, you have approached each season differently, with the first one being an anthology of sorts.

With Legacy Season 1, it was kind of a big experiment. No one has done it before, and we didn’t know if should be an anthology or connected. We did the first one as an anthology and the second one more serialized. In the future, it will definitely be more connected and more cohesive.

We are starting to talk about it [Legacy Season 3] literally this week (knock on wood). I’m starting to talk to Warner Bros. and the video game creators, so hopefully we can see it through.

We better see it, especially after that cliffhanger in Legacy Season 2.

I know, we pissed off way too many people. Ed Boon and I are going to get together and chat and talk to Warner Bros. about figuring it out.



Is this the reason why we’re not going to see a Mortal Kombat movie from you?

We all feel right now that we have such a trajectory to the series. There are so many more stories to tell in that format.


So, there we have it. It seems that there is still hope for Season 3 of Mortal Kombat: Legacy, while the new movie seems to be on hold, at least according to its former director.

Kevin Tancharoen rose to popularity among the Mortal Kombat fans, after accidentally releasing his Mortal Kombat short Mortal Kombat Rebirth on YouTube.

The details which led to him leaving the project are currently unknown. How this will affect the production of the new movie and the possible third season of the series is also not clear.

Legacy Season 2 Arrives Tomorrow: New Trailer & Movie Plans
by Gambid on Sep 25, 2013 :: 1 Comments

The long wait is finally over, Mortal Kombat: Legacy Season 2 arrives tomorrow, September 26th, on Machinima. And this time we won't have to wait an entire week for the next episode, as all episodes will be released together. Take a look at this brand new trailer:





Also, take a look at this interview with Mortal Kombat: Legacy director Kevin Tancharoen, in which he does not only discuss the series, but the upcoming movie as well:

HC: Does the the upcoming movie function as “Mortal Kombat Legacy 3″? Or will it start from scratch?

KT: We made a conscious decision that the movie is going to be its own universe, the reason being that we want “Legacy” to live on its own and I don’t want them to have to rely on each other because I think the world of “Legacy” still has a lot of stories to tell. They’re just two different mediums and two different styles of storytelling. I picture that there’s also a version of “Mortal Kombat” that’s a TV version or a Netflix version that lives on and is epic in its scope like “Game of Thrones.” Obviously, they’re not shy about killing their main characters, and I would have to do the same thing. “Mortal Kombat” has been around for over 20 years. The movie has to stand on its own. We want to take the mythology that everyone knows but also add to it. We’re still taking the canon, but we’re adding additional characters to still push it forward for another, who knows, 20 or 30 years. “Mortal Kombat” could be one of those games that could be around forever, and that’s how we’re treating the feature film.

by Gambid on Apr 8, 2013 :: 22 Comments

During this years' MIPCube Mortal Kombat: Legacy director Kevin Tancharoen and Lance Sloane, Head of Digital Programming and Development at Warner Bros. Digital Distribution participated in a discussion about the past, the present and the future of Mortal Kombat: Legacy and the next Mortal Kombat Feature Film.

Mortal Kombat Legacy Season 2 Trailer 2


Unfortunately no concrete release date has been announced for both projects but the next movie is mentioned in a conjunction with a new Mortal Kombat game, both planned for 2014. This should of course not be taken as an official announcement because it wasn't meant as one. The part of the conversation where this information comes from can be found at 19:30 and the release was mentioned with hopefully in between. Tons of additional interesting information is given and this is definitely an interview that you will not want to miss.

Make sure to watch till the end to watch a brand new Mortal Kombat: Legacy Season 2 trailer. It starts at 29:50:

The video was removed by the user.


Whether the information about a new movie and game releases in 2014 is completely accurate remains to be seen but nevertheless it is great to see some new Mortal Kombat information.

Update 04.09.2013:

The video went private only several hours upon its release. It looks like the Warner cover up machine is on full speed lately. It kind of makes us wonder what part of the discussion we weren't supposed to see. Whatever it is, it is too late because the cat is already out of the bag. Too bad for those of you who couldn't enjoy the new trailer but Machinima will probably release it too at some point.
